The latest addition to Delhi list of attractions, Waste to Wonder Park features the replicas of iconic seven wonders of the world, created from industrial and other waste. One of its kind theme park in the world, it was inaugurated at Rajiv Gandhi Smriti Van. A theme park featuring a 60-ft Eiffel Tower, a 20-ft Taj Mahal and replicas of five other wonders of the world built using 150 tonnes of industrial and other waste products including scrap iron, thrown away automobile parts, broken metal utensils and pipes in south Delhi.
It is surprising to know that Kota’s Seven Wonders Park triggered the idea Waste to Wonder Park after it was a feature in the Bollywood movie “Badrinath ki Dulhania”. Joggers and walkers frequent the exceptional park. The South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) has harnessed wind and solar energy to light up the park rendering a breathtaking sight during sunset and night.
Taj Mahal, Eiffel Tower and much more
The replicas are — Taj Mahal (20 ft), the Great Pyramid of Giza (18 ft), Eiffel Tower (60 ft), Leaning Tower of Pisa (25 ft), Rio de Janeiro’s Christ the Redeemer (25 ft), Rome’s Colosseum (15 ft) and New York’s Statute of Liberty (30 ft), SDMC officials said.
The seven replicas are installed in a landscaped park. Eiffel Tower, the veritable symbol of Paris and France, which is the tallest one among the replicas, and a Taj Mahal fashioned out of industrial and other waste, including used cycle chains, and motifs drawn on it using laser-cut technology, strikingly stand out.
Park located in South Delhi, at the edges of the Rajiv Gandhi Smriti Van, Mahatma Gandhi Marg.
